6 ‘All-Day Energy’ Foods To Eat For Suhoor During Ramadhan
24 May 2017
As Ramadhan approaches, muslims all around the world are preparing to fast for a month from dawn to dusk. If you’re a muslim, you know you’re not allowed to eat or even drink throughout the day, so it is important to have a fulfilling breakfast, even if it comes before dawn. To maintain energy and hydration throughout the day, eating and picking the right food will do do wonders for your body. Here are some of the best foods that will keep you energized throughout the day.
Besides being well-known for its richness in Omega-3 that can lower cholesterol and reduce risk of heart disease, Salmon is also rich in protein and Vitamin B, as well as niacin and riboflavin- all that helps to convert the food that you eat into energy. Pair with some brown rice and some vegetables and you’ve got a good wholesome meal to last you the whole day.
Don’t underestimate the power of the egg. It contains the highest complete form of protein in any food, where about 97% of it can be absorb by our body. Eggs also contain choline that helps your metabolism and central nerve system to function. Plus, you can have it in so many ways- poaches, fried, scrambled, baked or even as an omelette, it’ll be hard for you to get bored of eating it!
Be it kidney beans, chicpeas, black beans or any other beans. This power food is rich in in both protein and complex carbs. Great carnivores and vegetarians alike, beans may give you stinky gas, but is a great source for sustainable energy throughout the day.
Great to be eaten with any type of protein, spinach is an excellent source of iron, which is a key component in energy production.
Filled with immune-boosting vitamin c, this citrus fruit rations out energy steadily overtime instead of giving you that quick sugar rush. Peel and eat the fruit whole to benefit from pectin and fiber from the fruit’s membranes.
If you’re more of the sweet tooth, opt for dark chocolate but with the highest cacao concentration. Cacao has nutrients that fight stress and boost energy and focus. Plus, dark chocolate also contains a kick of caffeine, which helps to boost energy levels quickly.
